PDG Juliet is pleased to announce that one club in our District received both the Rotary Citation and District Governor Citation for the 2022-2023 Rotary Year:  Rotary Club of West Shore.  
The Rotary Citation awarded by Rotary International recognizes the hard work clubs do throughout the year to engage members, stay relevant in their communities, and run more efficiently. To achieve the Rotary Citation, clubs need to review all the available goals, select at least half of them, achieve those goals, and report their achievement in Rotary Club Central by June 30th.  Click here to Read more about the 23-24 Rotary Citation Criteria.
The  District Governor Citation is developed by the District Governor each year.  PDG Juliet developed 2022-2023 criteria based on the theme of IMAGINE ROTARY coined by RI President Jennifer Jones.  Clubs were asked to give an example of one new partnership the club engaged in and other ways the club imagined Rotary.  Ways the Rotary Club of West Shore achieved this award were through:
  • Engaging in new Partnerships:  Camp Hill Parks and Recreation with Toys for Tots Campaign with Parade of Lights activity.
  • Enhancing Public Image:  Added a LinkedIn account and increased frequency of social media posts.  Developed a video showcasing activities for the 22-23 Rotary Year. Click here to view the video
  • Increasing impact and reach in community through involvement in new community events:  Iron Bridge Festival in New Cumberland, National Night Out in Camp Hill, Lemoyne Borough Clean Up, Negley Park Concert.
  • Increasing Membership Engagement:  Increased participation with Rotary Means Business, District Conference, District Environment Committee, and RYLA.  Achieved club growth of 3 members in the 2022-2023 Rotary Year. 
Four other clubs in our District also received the District Governor Citation.  Stay tuned for their stories in a future Rotary Reporter!
